OAGD links still point to the obsolete back2roots domain

Hi,

first of all Frode, thanks for your efforts on FS-UAE! The program has considerably enhanced the state of Amiga emulation on OS X and I use it on a very regular basis. It's not without its quirks but it does its job fairly well!

I have setup the OAGD on FS-UAE and I noticed today that its link to many programs still point to the old back2roots.org site which is unfortunately completely obsolete now. The new site is listed on this thread: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=988525#post988525. Do you have a way to update them in a scripted way? I guess you cannot be reasonably be expected to fix the links manually.

I haven't checked how the OAGD is stored but if it can be converted say using a Python script I can definitely give a hand in doing so.

Hi, I have now removed all download links for back2roots.org games. It's very unfortunate that the site hasn't been fixed all this time :-/

(It is true that the site has appeared under another domain name, but it doesn't help when the file download links are still broken...)

Oh, ok. Thanks for the fix, at least this clears up any possible confusion.

I naively thought the whole site was back.
Their layout is so obscure and unreadable that it took me some time to notice the text where they indicate not everything is back online.
